Case File: The Briccriu's Feast Problem

Police Reports

Case Description: Due to some mischief sown by the naughty Briccriu (he's a guy similar to Loki), Conall, Loegaire, and Cúchulainn are embroiled in a heated case, which seeks to prove who is the most impressive champion. King Ailill, who was asked to judge, can't decide who is best, and has been angstily beating his head against the wall.

Case Status: Case closed. Queen Maeve graciously (okay, smugly) stepped in to decide. She pronounced each of them champions—but not equal ones. Loegaire got a bronze cup, Conall got a white gold cup, and Cúchulainn got a red gold cup.
